1960 Industry Codes

(Back to Industry Codes)

This page presents the 1960 sample industrial classification system recorded in the IPUMS variable IND. The page shows each industrial category and its corresponding IND code. The industries are organized into several large groupings (e.g., agriculture). In addition to this contemporary system, the IPUMS codes all census years into the 1950 industrial classification scheme, recording them in the variable IND1950.

Note: The 1960 PUMS Industry codes were designed to correspond directly to the 1970 PUMS Industry codes insofar as possible. The original 1960 census classification system was less detailed than was the 1970 PUMS system. All 1960 codes ending in "6" represent cases where the 1960 category contains more than one 1970 category. (For fuller understanding, compare the 1960 with the 1970 PUMS Industry codes.)
